Types of Arena Base
Vertical Drainage System
No matter the weather conditions, vertical drainage will keep your arena ride-ready. The composition of this arena base involves a layer of DrainRock/gravel with the mats placed between the layers. This type of drainage guarantees a lifelong horse arena and will save you money in the long-term.
Surface Drainage with Common Arena Base
Perfect for facilities that don’t rely on outdoor arenas, surface drainage consists of compacted natural soil topped with the arena base aggregate, which is typically 6 inches of a compacted crushed rock or limestone topped with decomposed granite or stone dust compacted to 98% density.
